Mangano Encourages Residents To Participate In National Blood Donor Month

In recognition of National Volunteer Blood Donor Month, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano is partnering with the Nassau County Department of Health, the Hispanic Counseling Center and NuHealth to sponsor a Nassau County Blood Drive.

“Donating blood is a simple life-saving gift, and I encourage all who are in good health to consider giving back this New Year,” said County Executive Mangano “With blood shortages throughout the nation, your donation could help save a life.”

For over 40 years, January has been recognized as National Blood Donor Month. The need for blood locally is constant, but due to inclement weather, holiday travel schedules and illnesses, January is often a difficult month to collect blood donations.

Donating blood takes approximately one hour. Donors must be in good health, weigh at least 110 pounds, and be 17 years of age or older. No appointment is necessary. For additional information, contact the Nassau County Department of Health at 516-227-9675 or the Hispanic Counseling Center at 516-538-2613. The blood drive will take place on:
